Family Raking LeavesWhether you are a new homeowner or have lived in your home for decades, the approach of fall is the ideal time to knock out some key home improvement projects. Winter can be unpredictable, which is why you need a solid Georgia home insurance policy. If Mother Nature is intent on unleashing her fury, your home will be better equipped to weather the storm if you take care of the following maintenance issues. Is your home fall-ready?
  • Check Your Attic For Gaps — Gaps in your attic or anywhere else in your home's structure will allow winter's cold winds in and increase your heating bills. Additionally, mice and other critters can squeeze through those openings and take shelter in your home. Seal gaps with caulk, wood, or drywall.
  • Trim Your Trees — The best time to trim trees is after they drop their leaves. Not only will your trees look more beautiful in spring, you'll be able to remove dead or precariously perched branches that could fall onto your home during a winter storm.
  • Freeze-Proof Your Outdoor Faucets — Before the mercury plummets below freezing, turn off the water connection to outdoor faucets and drain hoses and store them. If you need to keep your water turned on, wrap pipes with insulated covers.
  • Check Smoke Detector Batteries. — It's a good idea to replace batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors each season. Batteries are inexpensive and these detectors can save your life.
  • Clean Clothing Dryer Vents — Built up lint is a fire hazard. Dry fall and winter air can exacerbate static electricity, according to TXU Energy. Static electricity can spark a fire. Unplug your dryer and, if it is gas-powered, turn off your gas line. Pull the dryer away from the wall and vacuum the area behind the dryer and in the hose.
